If death isn't a deterrent, we'd have a billion more prisoners just enjoying visits from their happy families.

What about people who were forced to do hard labor by Vietnam communists?
They were victims, but no one remembers them because they died young and the communists got away with cruelty.

Statistically speaking it matters not whether a country has the death penalty or not. Serious and violent crimes always happen either way. As a deterrent the death penalty does not reduce serious crimes. I found forensic psychology a little depressing. Informative yes but depressing. The world is a complicated place. When it comes to crime there are too many factors and variables involved. I used to have a purely black and white view of crime and punishment but there is a whole lot of grey out there.

Personally I'd be scared shitless if I saw someone lose their pumpkin by the old guillotine in the town square.

I am very serious.

masterclass made good points, but I ask, what is the difference between a psychopath with a brain injury that makes him incapable for empathy and one that has been abused as a child, or one that simply has the wrong genes and has been born in the wrong family or part of town?

We cannot account for what we do, nobody can. We do not choose anything in the sense that we think we do. Therefore, hate is irrational, and executing people out of retaliation makes no sense.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

The trouble is the people have not always committed the crime they have been accused of, and have been found to been victims of a miscarriage of justice after being sentenced to death.

how many could be wrongly accused? 1% of all crimes? even that would be too much imo. but we will help your cause and say it's 10% that is wrongly accused...each time that is one innocent person that would lose his life BUT if you let serial killers free THEY WILL kill again in 60-90% of the cases and they will kill MORE innocent people than if there was a death sentence

so yeah do the math

[In the US]
Number of excecutions since 1976: 1327
Number of exonerations since 1976: 142

I make that at least 9.67% of people wrongly accused. No help is required for my cause just facts.

Anyway, no one is suggesting releasing serial killers onto the streets, prison is an option.

may be just for me, being shut in a prison for life is actually a more worst punishment than a quick death

my sympathy lies with the victims and not the murderers. Ruthless are those heartless murderers. I just can't stand staying in prison for life, I prefer to die, just my preference, not necessarily applied to others

There is no sensible or logical argument for the death penalty.
